The above listed strains are of European origin. Many strains of this species are available from
culture banks, including those maintained by the American Type Culture Collection and
Pennsylvania State Buckhout Laboratory. Strains are easy to obtain from the spores and tissue of
wild specimens.

COMMON NAMES: The Wine Red Stropharia; The Giant Stropharia.
LATIN ROOT: Stropharia means "sword belt", so named for the belt-like ring on the stem. The
species epithet rugoso-annulata comes from the combination of Iwo Latin words: "rugosus" mean-

ing wrinkled and "annulus" or ring.
